I've always sensed the miracle of music in the joy that it brings, but as I've studied the research and observed the unbelievable benefits of music making in every area of child and human development, I feel privileged to participate in a life work that has such a powerful impact on the world.”

“Music has always been an integral part of my life, and one of my favorite things to do is to experience music with others. Teaching Kindermusik in the past was an especially joy-filled way of sharing music with others and I’m thrilled to be back at Music4Kids to continue the journey!
Knowing the power of music to bring out your child’s potential in every area of development, we treasure the opportunity to be a part of your child’s life as they discover their unique gifts and talents.
Nurturing Musicality. Let it begin with Kindermusik! Kindermusik classes guide your young child through each developmental level as they progress in their ability to keep a steady beat and sing in tune. Young children can actually increase musical “talent” through musical experiences beginning at birth — so these early years are critically important to your child’s musical future. For Kindermusik graduates we offer a piano class where loving teachers provide a solid foundation upon which your child will build their musicianship and love for music.
Unlocking Potential. Over the last 20 years research has been flooding in about the amazing power of music making to promote learning and even to enhance the structure of the brain. Kindermusik activities are designed to foster your child’s cognitive, language, physical, creative, and social-emotional development. Beyond Kindermusik, taking music classes or lessons continues to offer the extraordinary benefits of making music.
Celebrating family. Music has the unique ability to connect people together, heart to heart. You will find that your family grows closer as you and your child share precious musical moments together. You may also find that your music friends become like an extended family. These opportunities for close relationships are a treasure to celebrate.
Music is one of the great joys of life . . .Share it with your child!
Music4Kids is a special place.
In our accepting, nurturing, and motivating environment your child will discover a love for music and gain the foundational skills needed to enjoy making music for life.
